    That is not in the plan.

    I have to be brutally honest here: the layout is diabolical. It's giving me flashbacks to the forums of a decade ago.

    You could also add an information field that allows users to enter their clan tag

    I meant it more sarcastically. Because many pages said something about updating and became a flat-design javascript nightmare.

    Don't get why you guys don't just ditch vBulletin and go with Xenforo, which is in many ways much more suitable for handling a community like this and making forum participation more appealing.

    It has live updates/notifications, an excellent PM system, a post editor that is not broken, many other features included by default and is super easy to configure. It also doesn't look as dated in most of the available styles/layouts, but this is something that can be solved with any forum software.

    Some example community sites using Xenforo:
    - http://community.playstarbound.com/
    - https://starmadedock.net/
    - https://forums.beyondunreal.com/

    Since I doubt a move to Xenforo will ever happen, there are a couple of things that would be pretty nice to have on these forums, that I've seen as a standard on many community forums, see this as a mini wishlist:
    - (Custom) Avatars, makes it easier to recognize posters and is just a nice extra bit of personalization
    - Unlimited PMs, it's 2017... I doubt storage is an issue nowadays
    - Likes (that appear visibly), to encourage good posts (but don't add dislikes, they discourage posting)
    - A better looking and less confusing profile page (it doesn't adapt to the theme and looks cluttered/bad in general, like what is an "Album" supposed to be? What are "Groups" used for?)
    - Less confusing attachment process
    - Better and less broken post editor with more features (and/or buttons for features)
    - (bonus) Live chat integration with discord would be wicked, but not sure if something like that readily exists atm
